Spoke to Rob today. The first wave of crew, including Rob and Kate, arrived safely in Oceanside, California yesterday.
Wave two - including a guy named... Wave!... arrives today with the pace van and all of Rob's bikes. He drove the van from Connecticut to California this week, as he has done for the previous three RAAMs in 1996, 1997 and 2000.
Wave is a good man!
In case you never saw this on Rob's web site, there are a couple of good posts (5/21/08 and 4/15/08) on the News page that describes the equipment involved and what each member of the crew does during the race. Worth reading as we prepare for the start on Sunday.
